The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued a pair of statements on the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass. — one from Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., and the other from Justice Stephen Breyer, who worked for Kennedy 30 years ago as chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Kennedy pushed for Breyer’s nomination to the high court in the early 1990s, and opposed Roberts’ nomination in 2005.

Said Roberts: “I am very saddened by Senator Kennedy’s passing. He was — all his life — a sincere, dedicated, and tireless public servant.”
